A classification scheme for resinites is proposed. Most resinites may be classified, on the basis of structural characteristics, into one of four classes. In order to exclude the effects of structural changes which reflect differences in the relative maturity of different samples, classifications are based on the structural character of the original resin from which the resinite was derived. In all samples characterized to date, this may be reasonably inferred from analytical data concerning the structure and composition of the individual sample. Class I resinites, which are by far the most abundant form of resinite in the geosphere, are derived from resins base...
